Sam McKenna is a young British singer-songwriter and musician. Born in East London, her music is principally acoustic and composed using a simple, stripped-back style. Her songwriting is vibrant and colourful with an intimacy in her lyrics that is both distinctive and memorable. In recent years she has studied at ACM and Metropolis developing her self-penned songs into a powerful set and an EP of original music is due for release before the end of 2015.
As a singer-songwriter turned producer she has experimented in many genres – influences as diverse as Tracy Chapman, the Beatles and Ed Sheeran have impacted her ‘sound’. She takes inspiration from all around – her friends, family and life as it surrounds her everyday. Her songwriting, although very personal, is also well grounded and accessible to her listeners. The songs are about life, love, truth and struggle – listeners connect, see, feel and relate their own experiences and emotions through Sam McKenna’s lyrics and music.
